We visited during Luminari Nights this year so the menu was restricted but they were very accommodating to my picky pallet. I had the Prime Rib which was outstanding and my husband had the Spinach Bread Bowl. Warm interior and friendly staff.

Dear Mebyename, Thank you for the positive review! We had such a great response on our Mesquite smoked prime rib that after the first of the year, we'll be offering it every Saturday night! I hope we see you again soon. Sincerely, Jim L. More

We needed food in a hurry, and Jack's green chili filled the bill... and then some! Huge bowls contained chili that did a slow burn, eventually firing up our mouths about half way through. We didn't have time to try anything else, but his smoker (standing beside the patio) looked like it could produce some well-smoked BBQ. We'll try the... More

Ate here luminary nights Saturday the 6th. Food came out warm and asked for fresh hot food. It was okay to bland tasting and ended up sick the next day. Won't be going back to Jack's!

Chad, Thank you for your feedback. We certainly had a few missteps during Luminaria nights, and while most of our guests had a great time, a few fell through the cracks, you included. I want to assure you that was not a typical experience at Jack's and that we take great pride in our fresh food and scratch kitchen.. If... More

Went there to have a nice dinner with a friend. We were first given the lunch menu and when we asked for the dinner menu we were told it isn't given until four when the baked potatoes were ready, it was 5 min to four, seriously?

Dear Hortstudentaz, I am so sorry you had such a bad experience at my restaurant! awful is an awfully strong word, but being out of staples such as french fries would justify that.

Once a year when we travel to southern Arizona I have lunch at Tubac Jacks. This is not a fancy place but the beer is cold and the food is great. We love their classic dish - green chilly stew. It is always wonderful. This year, while waiting for our stew we shared a plate of home made potato chips... More

This restuarant looked like a fun place and it had a great environment, but it over 50 mins for us to get our food. We ordered an appetizer and that took over 30 mins to arrive. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, but the kitchen staff seemed to be disorganized and under-staffed. I got the fish and chips special... More

Be happy, Please accept my sincerest apologies for your experience. I want to assure you it was an isolated incident.

While touring the local shops in Tubac, we stopped at Tubac Jacks for lunch. I had the Pulled Pork sandwich (great) and my husband had a burger which he declared to be one of the best he has ever had. We returned two more times (lunch and dinner). The quesadilla and flatbread were both good. We tried different burgers for... More

After a long morning of shopping you should stop for lunch at Tubac Jacks it's a saloon with some awesome Green Chili Stew and great Baja Fish Tacos. You should start with a order of their chips and perfect salsa! They also serve one of the best Michelada's around! You will also want to try their Dirty Redhead brew!

The ribs were absolutely delicious...perhaps that is why they ran out. In any event, I would go here again. The food was great. We had waiter who was very slow, but I got the impression it was his first night on the job. I cut him some slack, and still tipped him pretty well, as I could see he as... More
